 Hino Type T11B + T25 Trailer Bus

Hino Heavy Industry, which had manufactured tracked vehicles for military use during the war, utilized its remaining resources after the war to reorganize itself into a private-sector manufacturer under the name Hino Industry. Most of its effort went into re-entering the automobile market.
In 1946, Hino put its first new vehicle on the market, a trailer truck modeled after the large vehicles that the Allied Occupation forces had brought into Japan. It used the air-cooled diesel engine and chassis of an armored half-track vehicle that Hino had manufactured during the war. This was followed in 1947 by a trailer truck and trailer bus that both used a Type 98 6-ton tractor unit with a water-cooled diesel engine.
The trailer bus helped to ensure the capacity of the public transportation system at a time when cars were in short supply, and its semi-trailer configuration gave it a relatively small turning radius for its size, allowing it to operate on narrow roads. It was in production until 1950, and continued to be used for regular routes and even as a highway bus until single-unit buses came into circulation several years later.
